It was great the way it was in my opinion, that's why we played it.

New items are great, new champions are great, new maps are awesome. Changing the structure of an established game, extremely wrong. There were slight imbalances, there always will be with a game so fluidly changing. You just keep modifying and do your best to keep up. Give us more options don't remove them!

What we all know should happen: Bring back the old map and keep the new one. That's how you make everyone happy. If you don't have the resources to support the extra features then stop trying to expand your fan base. Though you know it's easy enough to maintain multiple maps, give us options and we will choose. Things will be balanced in general and that won't always work but with diverse options it won't have to.

Games are most fun when you feel you could lose, yet still there is hope. Something simple to play, with plenty of choices through-out. Riot got it right with the champions and the items, keep adding more. I say they take the next step and expand the maps, don't spread too thin, just fill out the options. People will play what they like. Balance is a natural thing made by choices, don't redo something that is well made. Just offer a counter, as a choice. That will give hope.

Please do consider: Expand your maps, take your time, do it right. Then diversify allow custom games to play any map any time. Random players choose to queue into maps, you provide the options (Change it up, just like free champion rotation.). Draft players are regulated into established and structured maps. Everyone has their choices and they are free to choose.

Now to the point. You took away a niche that must be filled. Dominion is complex and fast paced. Summoners Rift is large and strategic. We need a small map that is simple: Large enough for individual play, small enough there is always action. Yet simple with no complicated duties. All while still allowing full access to the diverse choices. That's what you had with the 'old' Twisted Treeline. That is what you need to return. We forgave you for destroying 'Stark's Fervor' because there were plenty of other options. What options do we have to replace the classic: Twisted Treeline?

They will never make everyone happy.

Whatever Riot does, someone will find something wrong with it. That's how this community is.

I'd like to see some comments here. What makes Shadow Isles an improvement over Twisted Treeline? Damage and Carry dominates... We need more items to counter. How can they justify removing thorns?
